      I just found out the show I am painting has a motorcycle in the show. I do not know if it will be running or not…but regardless, black tires!

      I sealed the floor with Ben Moore Stays Clear. I am sure that will not hold up to the scuffs.

      I am debating using Bona Traffic or the like. I can not goto garage floor epoxy for the lack of ventilation in the space (the offices are connected backstage).

      I just thought maybe a high solids floor wax? I have done that for high gloss floors and it held up well.

      Anyone have thoughts if that might be a good avenue to pursue?

        I’m curious– is there anything you could do to the tires instead of recoating the stage floor?

        The surface area of the tires you’d need to cover is probably like 6 sqft total… cover the treads with some black gaff tape, or electrical tape? If it’s not moving around it seems like a lot less work than recoating an entire stagefloor.

          Bona tends to gas off a strong smell as well.

          Just a quick thought in regards to lack of ventilation.
